"Each weekday morning here on KQED public radio about housing is sitting in for day Freeman this morning and the time now it's five thirty five this morning edition from NPR news I'm David green in Culver city California and I know well king in Washington DC good morning people importer Rico R. AG every two big earthquakes on the island the last one was on Saturday was a five point nine a bigger quake four days before that killed one person much of the south lost power and there are millions of dollars in damage and here is Adrian Florido is in San Juan Puerto Rico Adrian I know so I was watching your Twitter feed and you were there on Saturday one that aftershock hit where were you in port Rico exactly and what were you feeling I was in the city of Ponce which is a near the edge of the affected center region here it's been the most of these earthquakes have been centered in the south it was that five point nine aftershock on Saturday that sort of scared a lot of people here it was pretty scary I felt really strong there've been a lot of aftershocks since then including a couple of moderate ones last night and our seismologists saying that Porter Rico should expect more after shocks yeah they're saying that they could continue for at least a couple of weeks and so they're saying people should be prepared for those and and you know all this shaking his people in in Portugal south really on edge dealing with a lot of anxiety that big quakes last week crumbled hundreds of homes and and damaged a lot that did not necessarily tumble to the ground and so the big issue right now is that thousands of people have left their homes are too afraid to sleep inside out of fear that there could be the next one to come up with another quake hits and so people have been sleeping in these makeshift encampments or in these big open air shelters that local officials have set up on sports fields and I guess the terrifying thing is that you can't if seismologists are saying we could have aftershocks for the next couple of weeks who are not going to want to go back into their homes until they're sure that this is all over when you were out there talking to people what were they telling you about how they're making plans how they're dealing with each year injuries and just things like getting food and and you know using the restroom yeah I mean people aren't coping terribly well on the big thing I think is the mental health issues that sort of people feel like they're you know mental health officials say it is say could could get out of hand because of all the anxiety all the uncertainty Porter Rico is not used to earthquakes into people haven't generally been sort of accustomed to dealing with them at these encampments you have a you know on the one hand thousands of people across several towns sleeping in tents or under tarps or out in the open protected by nothing more than you the shade of a tree with no sense of unease quick second stop and therefore no real sense of on the go home isn't in their homes are safe to return to I'm so that's sort of the the green scene on the other hand you have a solidarity forming in in in large part because Porter Rican from other parts of the island have been mobilizing to make sure that these people are taking care of people across the island at the cooking huge pots of food they've been delivering toiletries close air mattresses there's so many people coming into the southern region it's actually causing traffic jams leading into these towns that's a nice thing to hear Adrian at Porter got hit very hard by her came Maria in two thousand and seventeen and it's still recovering from that so is it too early to say right now what recovery from these quakes is going to look like yeah and and it'll depend on a few things right one is that first of all you know people say they will not go back into these aftershocks of calm down and so we just don't know when that's going to happen the second is that many people say they want their homes inspected are there aren't a lot of engineers doing that work right now and then there are people who don't have any homes to go back to the future is uncertain if president trump signed a federal disaster declaration which the island's governor has requested that could provide money to speed things along and there is a major in Florida in port Rico thanks thanks last night the billionaire CEO Michael McCain head of one of Canada's largest food companies took to Twitter blasting the trump administration's Iran policy he referred to the victims in the shoot down of Ukrainian airliner there last week as quote collateral damage of this irresponsible dangerous ill conceived behavior and quote as David McGovern reports from auto with that accusation by the head of maple leaf foods as part of a growing anti trump narrative surrounding this air disaster Canadian questions about who is at fault for the downing of flight seven five two began quickly here's ABC news Washington correspondent Katie Simpson reporting the day after the passenger jet was downed I think a significant question that Canadians and particularly the families of these victims are going to have is are sixty three Canadians dead because of the the unintended consequences of a decision made by the U. S. president the number of Canadians killed has since been lowered from sixty three to fifty seven specifically the question for many here is why trump ordered the killing of a rams top general when he did sparking retaliation that led to around downing the Ukrainian passenger jet Charles Adler is a popular Canadian conservative talk radio host like many here he isn't letting around off the hook but he's also pointing the finger of blame at the White House he runs recklessness comes in response to the United States ordered killing of Iran's architect of terror the head of their special codes force general Soleimani I'll go to my grave believing those innocents who died aboard Ukrainian airlines flight seven fifty two would not have died had it not been for trump's decision to kill the general that commentary went viral here so too did a maclean's newsmagazine column written by another conservative commentator Scott Gilmore which featured this one headline Donald Trump gets impeached Canadians die years Gilmore talking to the CBC I could see a direct line between the impeachment of the president afterward being outraged at how unfairly treated he saw himself and continually trying to change the the topic to the economy strength US military a change of topic Gilmore says that led to the U. S. killing of general sort of money and then the downing of flight seven five two Gilmore says he has received an overwhelmingly positive response to his article not too surprising in a country where Donald trump's approval rating sit around twenty percent but many in Canada's political and military establishment see the events differently retired Major General David Fraser led Canadian combat operations during the war in Afghanistan this is a failure of Iranian military planning a planning that you know they knew they were in a strike into a rock they're gonna put their defense systems on high alert and eating coordinate with the civilian authorities so that there's just a failure of the Iranian command control structure to manage their airspace prime minister Trudeau has also avoided pending any blame on trump when asked directly about it by reporters as he was over the weekend the reality is there have been a significant tensions in that region for a long time and what we are calling for now isn't the escalation to ensure that there are no more tragic accidents or loss of civilian life our focus right now is primarily on ensuring accountability answers and closure for the victims and that is what we are engaged Trudeau says the questions that need to be answered are all to be found in Iran the Iranian government has now issued a Levin visas to Canadian crash investigators and officials Canada's foreign minister says.

"This is a CBS news special report by major Garrett in Washington good morning CBS news has learned that US officials are confident that our Ron shot down a Ukrainian jetliner in the hours after the Iranian missile attack on U. S. targets one hundred seventy six people were killed including at least sixty three Canadians this information is based on U. S. intelligence which sources say picked up signals of a rate are being turned on U. S. satellites also detected we are told to missile launches excuse me which happened shortly before the plane exploded now the Canadian bred broadcasting companies Katie Simpson says that won't truck may be responsible I guess she means indirectly I think a significant question that Canadians and particularly the families of these victims are going to have is sixty three Canadians dead because of the the unintended consequences of a decision made by the U. S. president and that's going to be a big question because there have been very significant questions and concerns raised here in Washington about why the United States decided to act why did you decide to kill Iran's top general when it did the United States states and top officials in the trump administration have publicly said there was there was evidence that showed a general Soleimani pose an imminent threat to American lives we have this tremendous military and you know what that is so it's really a great fighting force but I hope we never have to.

"United States. I really do his opinion on Eric. Erickson the information you need and the truth you math tells it like it is live every weekday day. I promise I haven't been passively aggressive with the pound cake recipe that promised like three days in a row I would send out. I know listen. I'm sorry life gets in the way. Sometimes life gets in the way I will get it to you though. I WanNa play some audio for you. This is news Katie Simpson. She's with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Let's start with the Canadians. We'll move the Americans. I think a significant question that Canadians ed particularly the families of these victims are going to have is Are Sixty three Canadians dead because of the the unintended did consequences of decision made by the US president. And that's going to be a big question because there have been very significant questions and concerns raised here in Washington Washington about why the United States decided to act. Why did decide to kill? Iran's top general when it did the United States states talk officials in the trump administration have publicly said there was There was evidence that showed a general Solani posed an imminent threat to American can lives. However lawmakers particularly Democrats have come forward to say the information they have been provided on top secret basis? does not satisfy the questions they have does not answer the questions about okay. What was that imminent threat? Why did you decide to do this? What exactly was at risk? Who was exposed? Why did the trump administration decided to make this who've now because of course the consequences Many had feared in the United States and and around the world those consequences would be quite significant. You just heard a Canadian reporter essentially blamed Donald Trump for this. Listen the Chris Cuomo's discussion on CNN. The ability to escape responsibility off for this. There's this suggestion all they'll probably blame the United States will. How forensically are you going to be able to determine where these missiles came from if they let the NTSB in on the investigation as has been ping pong back and forth? The latest word is that that Iran would let Boeing the manufacturer have a representative there. which may well be an NTSB REP to go? Would you be able to rule out that this was anybody but them and then how do you escape responsibility. Well you would be able to to rule out who it wasn't right. I don't know if you'd say who it was or why they did what they did. But it's definitely we can do rebuilds if you'd remember the mate seventeen Accident that was that was a different missile. It was the I believe is the Mr fifty-six boop Nestle but that was a a different set it was much more sophisticated but at the same time we were able to reconstruct it. Sure exactly where those penetrations went in where they came from and in fact we know there was three meters years from the cockpit when that explosion happen and sending shrapnel into the airplane so from this we can take that shrapnel take that aircraft and those pieces and do a reconstruction and find out nearly exactly where where it exploded in the direction in which way it came from so the facts will show who has to own this whether it will be on and what it means going forward. We're going to take up later in the show but it's not in dispute at this point that the Iranians are the ones who launched the the missiles to shut it down. The United States did not blow up an airliner. But if you listen to most of the press coverage you would think. Donald Trump is personally responsible for blowing up Ukrainian airliner leaving Iran which is absolutely not true trump derangement syndrome is polluting the press.

"Hanged in Iran just for being there is out there defending your ran and blaming president trump because Iran used to Russian surface to air missiles to down a Ukrainian airliner in Ukrainian airspace to the Democrats that's you know the blame America first crowd that is reason enough to blame the United States of America and and president trump because they didn't vote for him so it's his fault Bronco Bob of course Bob more countries than any president since World War two of course toppled engaged in a regime change war for eight months against Libya and the hypocrite the shocking hypocrite well not shocking just appalling hypocrite nanny pelo seats whose you're sure her face looks like when the guy say looks like Michael Jackson's driver's license photo that's pretty funny that's a funny guy in Texas I'm gonna have to get back to him because he's a funny guy I gotta get back I guess I gotta give credit for the joke too and I've I've got his name somewhere I gotta get back to him but Congress woman Jackie Spier Democrat from California blaming president trump for Iran shooting down a Ukrainian airliner in Iran it's all his fault because you know the world started when Donald Trump killed general Soleimani general selling money had apparently done nothing wrong Iran had never done anything wrong Iran was squeaky clean president trump is just mean and he decided to shoot this poor innocent man for no reason at all never mind the six hundred and three or six hundred nine Americans in whose death he had a direct hand or the thousands more being wounded in who's wanting he played a direct role never mind that the Democrats really don't care about that they don't know anyone that serves in the military they don't care about the military they're not on our side they are the blame America first crowd and their hatred for trump is just extraordinary as I I I did say I a little earlier on like Brett Kavanaugh Iran is not guilty until proven innocent Iran you must bring the DNA and the blue dress if you're going to say that a red shot down the plane now we've got the satellite images we've even got Justin Trudeau's saying that it's obvious that Iran I shut down this airliner without I believe sixty three Canadians on board and Justin Trudeau well he wasn't upset or anything he's just gonna wait for the United States to fix their wagon and then complain that we didn't do enough and that they had to wait too long that's the normal process I've been watching it for about forty years now and that's that's the deal now let me go let's just go let's go to sound bite number one once more with Justin Trudeau said because the Canadian Democrats don't believe the United States don't believe president trump because their brain washed zombies but they will believe any other person any other foreign leader so here is a wand little French speaking Canadian man who showed up to the press conference in tights leggings to the shop and not tights maybe maybe tides maybe not he said this intelligence from multiple sources including our allies and our own intelligence the evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface to air missile this may well have been an intention might have been unintentional but everybody's just is that just the same and they're still around just to say and then you get questions like go let's go to number two then you have Canadian reporters who were very much like American reporters task really crazy questions like this is the intelligence is accurate and it seems this is the end result of a sequence of events that was sparked by the drone strike ordered by the U. S. presidency that any information you have how much responsibility does the United States mayor for this tragedy how much not does the United States but how much is that ninety percent or a hundred percent I think is really the question here these people their brains don't work they really they're they're scrambled their izombie like brainwashed drones say their their really something there for their bread techno now Jackie Spier also went on CNN yesterday and she said the same thing but she was on again this morning with John Berman and sh Malleson Cammarata who are not on America's side there there CNN I mean come out they'll take the side of any foreign country any day of the week so John Berman asked democratic congresswoman California Jackie Spier isn't this really all trump's faults are you blaming the president in any way for the fact that it appears that a wrong shot down that jetliner no but I am but for the escalation yes in the accolade shaken by Iran there would not be a hundred and seventy six people dead today it all happened that emanates from the killing of stolen money so which is it should just be contradicted herself and a hundred and eighty degrees swing no but all in all emanates from truck killing solemn money should have killed so the money of terrorists who killed more than six hundred Americans because the Democrats would rather date him they would rather go on vacation with him in fact in the democratic race for the presidency so money is now polling at between twelve percent and fourteen percent he might actually take the nomination could be a brokered convention eighties dad sorry can't come bits and pieces tiny bits and pieces so she said no which was a lie because then she said yes and then sh Malleson Cammarata jumped in and I said it really is all trump's fault is that this airliner being down Iran did it at a random attack our embassy in Iran killed an American and injured more in Iran attacked our base is eleven times in a few weeks at around I was engaged in killing troops during the Iraq war which is not the same country as around just by the way for Democrats but somehow this is got to be trump's fault so here comes smells in camera now again Jackie Spier because she lives like an Iranian she she said well you are you really blaming truck because she blamed truck yesterday on CNN with wolf Blitzer light trucks and then she said no and then she said but it all emanates from trump killing stolen money which means yes so she doesn't know what these words mean she's not a smart person everybody knows Jackie Spier it's not a smart person but she doesn't know what no means and women are supposed to know that and and and yes she doesn't know and but she knows what the word but means and I and all of its iterations and she said but you know it all starts because the history started when trump killed so all the money not a minute before so money never did anything wrong he didn't start anything he is just a piece let you know that you know that according to the United Nations which should be bulldozed speaking of which I just want to remind you of this Iran because they wanted to preserve the integrity of the crash site bulldozed the entire area they ball and they say they're not handing over the black boxes and they bulldoze the entire area and they're lying about shooting down the airliner because they lie all the time because there is honest and their mass murderers and their terrorist so really lying is kind of a minor offense it's like Democrats are so dumb they think of you declare hospitals no go no guns owns gun free zones right down when people go in there and kill a bunch of people in a hospital you have the additional charge you can place against them of bringing a gun into a gun free zone this is how stupid they are that's a it's a pretty amazing stuff and it's kind of the same thing it's kind of the same thing here hi Allison camera with her pal Jackie Spier is it really all trump's fault I also think that it's fair to say this would not have happened if there were not tensions between the US and Iran right say because trump is responsible for tensions between the US and around everybody knows that trump has been president since two thousand seventeen and he is responsible for forty years of tensions between the Islamic revolution which was born of a war crime attacking and seizing our embassy in Tehran and holding hostages I think that's when the tensions began you very very dim witted little news anchor bunny rabbit you idiot Alison camera it really is that when the tension started but they they they're like it's like men in black they woke up with that thing with it in front of your face you don't remember anything before so the money being killed they have news timers they have no grasp of history no grasp of world politics and yet their national anchors that millions of dollars a year for CNN and that's the level that their brains function at where the level at which their brains function and not really it's got a because it all started when trump killed solar money Jackie Spier we need to remember how this all started yeah this has started from the time the present United States remained on the nuclear jail nuclear had with around and then impose severe sanctions on Iran that is hurt them economically no one called the revolutionary guard a terrorist organization he keeps wrapping it up and the result is that they respond she's a traitor to our country she is a treasonous expletive deleted she is a handmaiden for the I a toll lock Khamenei she has just an unbelievable hack her name is Jackie Spier she's an elected Democrat in the house of representatives from California pretty pretty amazing amazing stuff let's go to but not but you know not entirely boot and judge your would be hanged for showing up in Iran is also blaming the president because history started when stolen money was killed and that's and you see how how this all started Jackie Speier said was it was trumps fault because he pulled out of the nuclear deal if you can't pronounce the word you shouldn't talk about nuclear things all right if you're too dumb to say nuclear and you walk around saying nuclear you should be kicked out of Congress Jimmy Carter was trained as a nuclear engineer by the navy and he's still said said nuclear and still I'm sure says nuclear nuclear the word is nuclear all right if it's unclear look it up the spell it maybe write it down tried out a couple times say it out loud and learn the word it's an important word you know and and and what it what is it her shoes hand grenades and nuclear weapons but you should get the word right you're not very bright new your letter thank you for now news your letter say there you go it as everybody knows and it all started she lied she is a lying sack and she lied that it all started because Evan tensions and showers in camera these tensions with Iran really you know didn't exist because Obama gave them a hundred and fifty billion dollars told them to keep spinning centrifuges enriching their uranium working on their ballistic missiles and paying for it by the way president trump talked about the last night let's go to let's go do excel but number seven this is the Canadian broadcasting company well actually we we didn't play six did we wouldn't disagree should do six does this is these are the questions from reporters I making quotation marks with my fingers at Justin Trudeau's little French Canadian press conference yesterday given the tensions in the area that were the calls of a drone strike by the United States do you think that the United States is at least partially responsible for this tragedy yeah I don't don't you think at least at least partially really isn't this the United we should launch a missile strike against Canada we should we should knock out maybe just take down their power grid for a couple of days or something then the Canadian broadcasting system hires a little lefty by the name of Cady Simpson Katie Simpson are and she related OJ Simpson now should know she still has her head or something no she Katie Simpson of the Canadian broadcasting company are sixty three Canadians dead because of the the unintended consequences of a decision made by the U. S. president and that's going to be a big question because there have been very significant questions and concerns raised here in Washington about why the United States decided to act why did you decide on top general when it why did you kill the terrorists who murdered six hundred Americans why I don't know why let's go to number nine this is Ali albenza it out all the items that is the chief of civil aviation for Iran he was asked Hey you turbans Fortin Nick which you shut down this Ukrainian airliner and killed all those people didn't show the mobile we're concerned with absolute certainty is that no missile had hit as I said last night checking on a plan have troubled while on fire for more than one and a half minutes from the crash site shows that the pilot had decided to return to the airport yeah and that and that's why we bulldozed the entire area so that everyone could see that they bulldozed the crash site which has never been done in human history well not since the last time I think Russia shot down a civilian airliner and you know it happens there you go Hey here's some great news if you missed the deadline to sign up for health insurance or.

"Some very question I am standing here right at the site of one of those missile hits this is the crater the damage that was caused by the impact of that strike you can see it's not a huge amount of damage but the ground is very soft you can also see it's been raining very hard there's a lot of shrapnel here on the ground from that impact but the question is what exactly where the Iranians targeting local security officials telling us there's simply nothing here there's a refugee camp just under a mile away in that direction but no U. S. presence no US military presence particularly this may have been for the Iranians less about showing power and precision John then it was about showing reach notable Paulo Brazil but we get you if you want to I'm sorry I don't agree with your conclusion this was about they were really trying to hit us but they did mistakenly hit an airliner Hey you know what Katie Simpson from the C. B. C. well she laid the blame for this at the feet of the president of the United States I think a significant question that Canadians and particularly the families of these victims are going to have is are sixty three Canadians dead because of the the unintended consequences of a decision made by the U.

All of us together have finally accomplished what we set out to do at the very outset. A Win Win Win. Agreement which will provide stability for workers in all three of our countries for for many years to come the noon after deal is all wrapped up with a bow just in time for the holidays and Deputy Prime Minister Christa. Freeland may sound Mary. The the latest job numbers declining foreign investment and worries about regional alien are raising fears that the future may not be so bright. And of course who knows if the grinch is lurking in the shadows because new Nafta's still has to be ratified by each country here to look at all of this. Is Our national affairs panel. Katie Simpson is a senior reporter with CBC News. She's been covering the Nafta talks and now the deal and we eastern Mexico City. Heather Scoffield is an economics columnist for the Toronto Star. She's in our Ottawa Studio and Kelly cried. Herman is a Calgary based reporter for the Globe and Mail who covers business and politics and she joins us from there. Hello to you all morning heather. Let's let's start with you. What are the positives? You see for Canada in this new trade agreement. It's a big relief. I think to you Well from from the business community point of view to just have some stability into know that there is something finally written on paper that yes it still has to go through ratification but it looks like ah you know all this. Everything's lined up for that to finally happen so you know for the last three years business every time you want to go and make an investment and every time you want to think where you're going to put your next dollar you've been you've been Surrounded by this uncertainty not knowing what's Donald Trump going to do next asked what he's what's he going to demand for his own economy What are the rules of the game and so you have second thoughts about investing in Canada and so this gives some kind of certainty in a very the very uncertain world? I mean there's all sorts of other things out there for sure but but this is this is one big piece that that is finally settled. Katie you are in Mexico City. What was the mood like among Canadian eighteen delegates at the signing ceremony? Mexico's National Palace. I think there's a sense that this is actually now in the final stretch and they can finally finally proceed with the domestic ratification process. And they're relieved. Everyone thought that this was going to be over about a year ago when they signed off on this does aries the sidelines of the G. Twenty people knew would be difficult with the changing political dynamic in the United States however now there seems to be a bigger sense sense of relief but one thing that I want to point out. That was really strange inside. The Room is when the Americans got up to speak at yesterday signing ceremony it was. US Trade Representative Robert Bert Lighthizer who spoke on behalf of the American delegation. And he was. It almost became uncomfortable the way he was gushing about the American or about out the Mexicans and and how the president was a historic figure and and how they put the best person possible in in this position to negotiate gate. This and they didn't let politics get in the way and the key to that is the Americans were so pleased to get the concessions out of Mexico. Soco's that they were able to get that ball blight heiser was just. He couldn't contain himself at the ceremony. Yesterday okay well we know. Then it's going to be a a big selling point for trump in Washington them but tell us what's in this agreement that allows the Canadian government to frame this as a win win win Kristof religious said well Christopher your freely in the Canadian government is trying to take credit for some of the changes that were added to this agreement and When Nafta negotiations originally began back in two thousand seventeen the the conservatives that actually criticized the Liberals for trying to put some things in there that were to progressive particularly around the environment? Well what do you know two years later when it's time for the Democrats to have a say in all of this in the United States That the environment would be a big deal. So the the changes that have been added to this agreement relate to environmental environmental and labor provisions and making sure particularly in Mexico. The Mexican companies live up to the Labor standards and they've they've sort of changed the onus here that if a company is believed to have been violating the standards and not meeting the standards that have been set out by this agreement. It's up to the company to prove that es in violation of the or it's up to that they are following the rules that are in place it reverses the onus and so there's a big push to make sure that inspections can be done in Mexican facilities to make sure again. There are those standards and make sure that there is the right to collective bargaining in Mexico. Things like that so the major changes are really targeting. are really targeting Mexico but there is one change that really stands out for Canada and that has to do with pharmaceutical drugs. Dogs the new Nafta the the one that was negotiated in two thousand eighteen that all three countries signed off on had this provision that large pharmaceutical companies could develop and be protected texted from generic companies taking their science to make generic drugs for ten years in Canada. The current law or the current rules are eight years so this would give those big pharmaceutical companies two more years to make those big profits and it would mean that the higher drug prices could be charged for an additional two years. Well the Democrats got that entire provision stripped out so it will remain status quo in Canada Kelly. Credit and Calgary what is the view from there is Canada's seen to lost in it in any ground in this agreement. Well I you know I think in For all the reasons that Heather in Katie of laid out there is is a sense of relief that there is any stability and any solid agreement that can really be relied on as as as Canadian companies look for investment as they look for some kind of stability. I think they're this does not put an end to what might happen out of the US. The Donald Trump administration. This does not put an end to the uncertainties there. the ratification process for this will take place in the US. Maybe a day after the impeachment impeachment vote so there there's still a lot of uncertainty. I think what is really interesting to me. Is What is interesting to Albertson's in a lot of respect to is the messaging that came from Christie a freeland on this of course. She emphasized at a in Mexico City yesterday that that this will this new Nafta after deal will require a seventy percent North American aluminum component. Of course that is focused at Quebec Major aluminum producer deuce her and that that was important. Because right away you had Block leader Mr Blanchette saying that. This deal isn't good enough for Quebec so I think the messaging on this back to Canada was really interesting because we have a government. A minority government needs to rely on the other parties. The other parties are going to be looking at the de details details of this deal and and really they will have an actual say in this unlike If if this agreement had come to fruition before The October vote that led to a minority government so I think the messaging back to the Conservatives to the block to the. MVP is really interesting in this case. Heather we we are. There are growing concerns about the health of the Canadian. Economy is this deal is signed. What what did the latest job numbers tell us? Well we had We've had a really great year in terms of job creation until last month. Where where where the where we had a major setback And you know every economist will say okay. Let's let's look past. It's the number you have to. You have to look over over time and not get too carried away about one month But you know there is. There is certainly a lot of concern. I think that the global economy is slowing down And that growth levels in Canada are just not what what we what we've become used to. They're not what they used to be an in and going forward. We won't be seeing a lot of strong growth so You know there. There is a fear that this one month will be a sign of things to come or or that or that. You know we're just heading into a period of of of slow growth and weakness. Generally that even if people are getting jobs they're not getting there. There's just not a lot of momentum. I mentioned in the economy so that our standard of living over time is is eroding. We'll jobs are one thing. Heather what what are other indicators that suggest the country could be heading for recession in two thousand twenty. Well I don't think You know nobody's crying recession yet in a serious way But we do have quite a few challenges on on on the horizon that that that suggests some some times I think investment is one of the one of the things that Quite a few people who are concerned about we had some ups and downs For sure but Especially in the patch. I think Kelly Kelly knows a lot about that but That they in the third quarter. We had some really Concerning serving investment numbers and and you know with all the uncertainty that we see globally That that looks to be a sign of things to come and Kellyanne hustle prized where you by the national numbers given unemployment in Alberta. I was surprised to see such a dramatic turn in the national numbers of course A A low ebb. Economy is something that elbruz been dealing with the last five years and there are a lot of striking numbers in the the statistics. Canada job report for November. Of course it's just one month it's a snapshot but we saw you know not only the Drop in job numbers nationally but in Alberta we we saw another increase in the unemployment rate another eighteen thousand jobs lawson and really strikingly a really high jump in the unemployment rate among young young men Under age twenty five basically in one in five young men in Alberta under the age of twenty five is unemployed right now according to the November numbers. And you know if that's not a political issue I don't know what is when you have young men without work and what was really striking to me. This week is Federal Finance Minister Bill. More no saying he doesn't He doesn't worry too much about recession..

"So those are the conditions that the MVP has laid out to support the Liberals in the event that the liberals neither support which they will. And so I really do hope. But that's you know that we get some of that stuff happening in the next couple years but if we did have a system that was not first past the post this would be par for the course. It wouldn't be something that we had to wait for or that would be weird or unusual. That happened every time that we remember that there there would be a minority government. If we didn't just listen to the liberals saying that we had to strategically vote all the time totally. I mean this. This is the most important lesson to learn from tonight's results The polls were all right. Pretty much actually like they were putting the Liberals and conservatives in a dead heat and popularity they are in that heat and the liberals will emerge as the victors and the MVP. The Greens and Judy Wilson rebelled and the the block. I mean the block of land interesting role Will have the ability to actually do some very fucking good shit especially on the environment because those parties ladies are more or less united on the need to make change and they can strong arm the liberals into making that change if they are sophisticated enough and if they can negotiate their way into doing what is right and what is necessary and I guess that the Segue into talking about how power from the ground needs to be used in targeted to make sure that the parties all do what. They said that they will do and what Canadians need them to do. And this is the most most important time to do that in a minority government situation. Everyone's on their toes because the election could becoming in the next three months literally. I mean it won't but it could and so given that reality Parties are going to try to be on their best behavior. So that means if there's any little lil social movements on the ground that are out there trying to make a party look bad. They're gonNA do everything they can to try to quiet such a social social movement and let me tell you how the easiest way to quiet a social movement should just do what they want. This is an excellent opportunity. See for organizers on the ground to get a lot of necessary things that we need done to support people on the ground Done like now is the time to really ramp up our our organizing And you know like the next election and which again it will happen before for years is up you know no minority government millette. There's no case where there will be a minority government that lasts for years. It will fall before four years is this is what movements are going to need to push for the things that we really really want and also oh also crucial to remember in this. This two year period is all the burgeoning social movements that have been created by young people over the last few years whether that be the movements from the youth who walked out of their high school classrooms to to the movements. It's of climate change. That have really begun to to blossom over the last couple of years. You know what Nora Aura said in our previous podcast just before this one that the old guard parties are looking at the end of the way politics six have been have been going in this country for years. That's true in these next couple of years. I think it's really crucial for us. As organizers people on the ground who really care about one another about creating adjusts -iety. It's really crucial that we ah take the opportunity of this next two years and force the sort sort of social change that we need to see for one another and everything's really well placed for for this right like the the the this is where the MVP needs to really think hard about the the way that their campaign took off in the middle in the middle of the campaign like Jug. Meat is like a favored celebrity type individual. He's popular especially among on young people and so that is going to help launch parties power in the public consciousness In a way that will actually really allow them to negotiate really In a in a in a in a position of strength with the Liberals but the party also has to like not forget get that that style and And the the the the leader having popularity is not good enough on on. Its own that there has to be a strong base to that they have to be connected to the grassroots they have to be connected to social movements. There can't be any missteps on talking king. About like Oh you know the GNA pipelines okay but added Transcanada pipelines. Bad or any of this kind of stuff like they have to be very clear and now now is the time to really look at your promises and see what are those things that will make the biggest impact I mean if I was working for the MVP. Oh say electoral electoral reform in the environment for now and pick a lot of different issues that they can just improve from the for the Liberals and Fuck Yo you you guys got to figure out what your relationship is with the Greens. Because I mean I remain super firm and my physician that both parties do far more to hurt one another and the left Separate than they would if they were together. That's we already talked about that so you can check out that episode from a couple of weeks ago while I think that's about it that's wrap on what we're able to say tonight. I mean well there's one other thing. Oh okay well. This is just a real as episode. We thought it was going to be short. This is just a regular as episode. So go ahead. I'm I'm just GonNa throw this at you because I think that we really can't ignore the biggest loser of the election. which was the Canadian media? Yes Sir I like I love that framing. Guess the biggest loser is the Canadian media. I agree Oh my God okay. Tell me where you're headed with this. Well I think that it's important for us to kind of look at missteps from the press at how they tried to define certain issues that people were like not having That they defined other issues that were like ill defined. They completely ignored so many critical issues and instead talked about Shit like Andrew. Shears fucking citizenship or I mean I don't even actually can't even remember all milk Yeah I mean. At least you're GonNa talk one mill that you can talk about. Supply management like explain the system. People explain why there's so much fucking opposition to whatever. We're why the fuck can't get cheese anymore. That's made in Canada like fuck that. Actually yes like there is a way to talk about these. He's resources in a way that matters to the people who are both producing them and consuming them but that is not how he talks about milk in this election at at all also maxime Bernier. The media created the People's Party of Canada in totally and it's really fucked up that they did that and then spent a bunch of time tonight. talking about giving space to his fucking concession speech. He was a joke he was always joke. He was never for real and Y'all created him and nothing is more clear about that than the motherfucking results in which he only had one seat that he was possibly going to win and he didn't even get that yeah. And the last couple of days the biggest scandal that journalists covered. I mean this was just so indicative. How completely fucked up you people story are- but was this whole scheme about the Conservatives Hiring Shit Lord Warriors Morgan Sela to take down the People's Party and I don't want to get into that issue I think it's fucking not worth talking about? But there is a comment made on course. It's not just like who the fuck cares. There is besides me and Norah. Zero People Zero fucking role party. Justin Trudeau Liberal Party. That's it no one else cares. Otherwise it's just something interesting that northern and I like talk about For literally less than two seconds on Facebook Messenger Wendy. Yeah but besides that nobody cares. No help he cares. And there was this damning tweet that I believe Katie Simpson put up from CBC. She said that that they had they had asked conservatives. They asked Inter share about this. This lake like nefarious campaign to take down the poor innocent people's Party of Canada. They asked him twenty three times. Twenty when he fucking three. How many times do you think they asked Trudeau a Saudi weapons program? Do you think we can find twenty three times over the course of that. I would be surprised if you twenty three but there's no fucking way with twenty three times in the morning. How many times do you suicides in indigenous communities? How many times do you think even for Water Gas Twenty Three fucking times? No no isis like just pissed media like come on. y'All get get it together like I. I saw an article about what has been happening to justify does hair over the years and but I know it's not all you media I know that there's some producers somewhere who is like assigning it to you. The person person who had to put their name on that article being like okay. This is what you're doing and they're like fuck my whole life. I get it. This is this. This is new lows of disaster. Like there was so much to talk about in this election. That was not talked about anything that had to do with migrant rights like. I can't believe that that wasn't talked about. Given how Justin Trudeau managed managed to justify how he was different than trump. And how like all of the support that he got over the years for being the type of person who is accepting of different communities and juxtaposing that with his record what an opportunity for journalists to expose something like that To make it an issue in this election you know there was You know Activists who were running in this election who've been been doing work on these issues all their lives and I. I'm just so disappointed in the media for not focusing on the issues that people who live above the forty ninth parallel desperately need need to be focused on In an election like this it's pretty reprehensible. Yeah and I I. I want to identify two issues that I am I I am. I'm honestly scandalized. That they did not come up in this election at fucking all they kind of relate to what you just said the first is that this is the first election that was held.

"Standing behind a politician at a press conference the backdrop so to speak are usually trustees supportive bunch and while the mayor's Flanking Liberal leader Justin Trudeau today were polite they weren't exactly supportive in Richmond Hill Ontario Mr Trudeau unveiled his party's gun control plan plan which included giving municipalities the choice to impose a ban on handguns but the mayor's at today's event all serving the Greater Toronto area want Mr Mr Trudeau to go further with a national handgun ban here's the liberal leader speaking at the event today followed by a question from CBS's Katie Simpson one of the things as we've heard clearly from the mayor's here and indeed right across the country is a desire to move forward on restrict and ban and guns within their communities communities. We recognize I sat. GTI has over five million people who could live in municipalities where handguns are flat flat out banned. This is something that will make a significant difference in moving forward on gun control in this country and the choice in this election couldn't be clear liberals want to strengthen gun. Control Conservatives want to weaken gun control. That is the choice facing Canadians on October twenty first. I'm going to note that you did not specifically answering my question but I I'm wondering if I get a show a hand from the mayor's here. I don't know what the answer is from you guys but we heard it from the medical professionals who are on the front lines yesterday that a national ban. Dan would be something that they would be in favor of because as one of the doctors pointed out you could cross from one city to another to pick up a handgun of a show of hands here from mayors who would like a national national ban. I can tell you I heard clearly from them that many of them want us. I want us to bring a national ban. Yes so all of the if you take a look behind you. All those people are saying national ban you heard from the medical professionals so why not go that route we are taking the strongest step in Canadian history to move forward on tougher gun legislation. We are moving forward on a full out ban on assault weapons and we're moving forward to empower municipalities this apologies across this country cities big and small to ban handguns within their districts within the municipality. This is a significant step forward art and the choice in this election is do we move forward on strengthening gun control with the Liberals or do we go with the Conservatives who who want to weaken gun control. That is a choice Canadians are facing liberal leader Justin Trudeau reacting to a unanimous show of hands from Ontario real mayors on a national handgun ban and responding to a question from CBC reporter Katie Simpson.
"katie simpson" Discussed on Front Burner
"So we're almost was one week now into the federal election campaign and a lot has happened. The liberal campaign bus hit their own plane. No one was hurt. It was more entertaining than anything else. We were waiting for our luggage to be loaded on board now. When that happened? Our bus pulled away and almost immediately we heard a loud scraping sound. Justin Trudeau was a no show to the first debate. It can all agree that Justin Trudeau is afraid of his record and that's why he's not here tonight. He is but today we're looking at two different topics the slate of candidates who have been dumped or remain despite despite controversial statements or posts on social media and the many many promises made to voters. CBS's Katie Simpson has been on the road covering the conservative team and and of course fashion Capello's Hosta power politics is here with me. This is front burner Katie. Hi Guys Hi Jane. Hi So happy to have you both here Katie. You've been on the campaign trail with conservatives since the campaign started. Tell me what it's been like well right now. I'M GONNA bus. You're going to probably hear a lot of noise of my colleagues. in the media getting on and off this bus and they're all joking saying they're not is loud as me which is mildly accurate so right now. The conservative media bus is on its way to Andrew Shears. Here's policy announcement right now he's in Cologne A. B. C. He's expected to make some sort of announcement related to affordability and that of course is part of his overall theme. The Conservatives are trying to make the argument to Canadians that you'll keep more money in your pocket. If you've over conservatives we saw that with the policy announcement yesterday or on a Sunday I've actually lost dark the days because all of the days of actually mashed together all blurring together just all mashed together and of course we're recording this on Monday morning so we haven't heard that announcement from Andrea Sherr yet but I know a little bit later in this conversation. We're GONNA talk about some of the ways that the Conservatives have already promised to make your life more affordable not to give spoiler alert that she I understand. You also haven't slept in a week. How are you doing. I'm fine. I'm good. It's gotTa pace myself yeah. It's like a marathon. I find it. If you have no life. It really helps near fine. Good just completely neglect your friends and family or just don't have many okay. Let's get moving here so candidates have been dropping like flies since the election began. This feels a lot to me like the hunger games just at the beginning when a bunch of people just get immediately eliminated. Let's go through some of them. So everyone has a sense of what we're dealing with Katie. Let's start with the conservative. Go go through a few of the examples with me. let's start with Cameron Ogilvy so Cameron Ogilvie is the one candidate who's been fired by the Conservatives he was running in the riding of Winnipeg big north and there were a number of social media posts discovered by press progress and when pressed progress went to the Conservative Party said. Hey have you seen these posts. They decided to kick him out out of the party. They actually put out a press release and they tried to sort of spin it as saying hey we're taking action fast. We're kicking this guy out. Why is Justin Trudeau when they're controversial comments about other other candidates in his party wise and taking action like that so they tried to spin it as an attack even though it is someone who passed their own vetting process who had comments it's on social media that were considered anti Islam and insensitive toward Muslims okay and and he was asked to resign by the Conservative Party because of this yeah they they fired of course let my let the Cannon Statement on that issue speak for itself. I have obviously made it clear that I won't have anything to do with that individual and as I said the other day we're gonna you see this from liberals from now until election day trying to do everything they can to distract okay so that's one. Let's do the conservative candidate for Mississauga Streets Ville so when in Andrew Scheer went to the Greater Toronto area liberal opposition researchers were pointing journalist to a number of previous articles won the National Post one in Vice News that had said Data Malik had tried to run for the provincial conservatives in two thousand eighteen in the Ontario election however the party did not give her the green light to run because yes you had all of this controversial postings on social media. It's mostly a sharing of content a lot of transphobic content things like videos from the rebel bowl talk about protections for LGBTQ students in Alberta and you know trying to spin it as well. This is an attack on girls as attack on students and and you know posting things like this transgender person regrets their transition and those kinds of comments those kinds of articles Andrew Scheer Shear has he has said if a candidate apologizes and takes ownership of their mistakes and promises to be supportive for all Canadians that he still willing to stand by candidate and that's what he's doing with Malik. I all I can tell you. Is that gotTa Malik has acknowledged that some of the comments that she had re tweeted were were insensitive and that she has is taking responsibility for that. I'm glad that she has okay and we're gonNA talk about Angie. shears response a little bit more in a minute but let's just do two more so the way this has been working as the Liberal Research Bureau has been compiling all of these old whether it's social media posts and then they've been giving the content to liberals to tweets what's out there for everyone to see and our panel is one of the targets that they took aim at because Andrew Scheer when he was in Brampton North how to campaign event where they were going to go door knocking together and and and have a rally at his campaign headquarters and so on that day the Liberals knew that was going to happen so they dropped that post online showing that back in two thousand ten Mr Khan I was a teenager at the time had called someone homophobic slur on social media and again Andrew Scheer said that his candidate has apologize taking ownership for his words and that he's going to stand by him there and eventually the strategy for the liberals dropping this information on the day that Andrew Scheer is going to campaign with these these candidates like it essentially so that they're forcing him to talk about that and get something else right yeah basically. They're just hoping that reporters ask. Mo more more of their questions on that then whatever under shear wants to be talking about. It's just a strategy designed to get the Conservatives off whatever message they hope to be getting across that day you know I want to talk about one more conservative candidate a star candidate who is also part of the story Justyna McCaffrey. Some people may know her as a pretty famous wedding dress designer. She's running for conservatives in Ottawa and the Liberals released a video over the weekend a McCaffrey pitching a reality show about herself and faith Goldie. See just you know myself. We go back a couple years now. First first time we met we clicked see I believe a little thing called the girl Mafia. If your heart smart pretty role on the right crowds I basically want become your for those who might need a refresher. Asher on who faith Goldie is she was fired from the rebel media after she appeared on the Neo Nazi podcast the daily stormer in the US. She's made very controversial comments about immigrants. It's she's been banned from facebook. Sheer says he wants nothing to do with her Katie. I know you were with Justyna McCaffrey over the weekend. How is she responding to this. So there are actually two posts. The liberals came forward with on Justyna McCaffrey. She also made some comments that people in Quebec and French Canadians took some deep offense is to and it had to do with her saying that Justin Trudeau seems to be preoccupied with the French and that my colleague from Radio Canada that I'm traveling with on this campaign as he pointed out that that's something that obviously would not go over very well so there was that video we reached out to the Party and they put out a statement on behalf of McCaffrey saying listen the video that you guys posted stood when we were trying to pitch a reality. TV Show is from twenty thirteen. There were some photos of them at service from two thousand seventeen that were put out there again by the liberal research team it gets into strange strange territory. Where can you be held accountable for being friends with someone you know before they really sort of shifted and turned it such strange French territory and I'm not quite sure what Canadians are going to think about that anyway we tried to. I tried to talk to Jesse McCaffrey and the first question was actually GonNa ask was about the French comments but at her own campaign event on Saturday in Ottawa she was hosting Andrew Scheer. It was like a little barbecue outside of her campaign headquarters. I'm I'm she introduced Andrew Scheer and then what Andrew Scheer finnish-speaking until questions she left the event and we we I'm not GONNA lie. We expected her to leave the event because she's she's in an uncomfortable situation and there's a chance that candidate sometimes don't answer questions but when I went with a camera I'm working with the pool team here. We went to go talk to her and then she would not suffer questions custom who just has really quickly got into a car and sped off and anytime. There's an yeah anytime. There's an image of that it's never good because this is someone who wants to be the voice of their community and represent constituents and when you speed off from the situation. I it looks bad and and not to make light of this situation but you know for those listening. You might wanna Google that video it is it is quite entertaining to it's something vastly. Of course I like. The Conservatives are not the only party who have found themselves in hot water here. Let's talk about the Liberals. Eight is qualified candidate actually before the campaign started has seen Enga- yes and and I just wanted to quickly jump in and what Katie was saying because on the issue of you know it's one thing to have people who said things specifically. It's it's almost a different to look at who they're hanging out with and and what that constitutes the Conservatives right away were saying well. Hey Justin Trudeau's been hanging out with some shady people too and they pointed right away to that a picture of Justin Trudeau with Joshua Boyle right who you remember with someone who was in Afghanistan. He's now charged with domestic abuse among other things so the the argument goes both ways right an and and like Katie said I can anticipate that that's going to be a little bit of a grey zone in this election as far as candidates for other parties go. There's Hassan guy you mentioned. This is someone who is disqualified prior to the start start of the campaign he had made a number of anti Semitic comments on social media which were unearthed by Bennie breath name breath says and he says also the liberals new you of this at the beginning of August and they were actually he's he claims working with him on a PR strategy beneath breath then a few weeks later actually sent all that information to the media and end very shortly thereafter I think within I think Senate in the morning and by a few minutes before our show went to air at five o'clock at night the Liberals had disqualified him as a candidate. He insists that they had no intention of doing that. Prior to the media getting hold of Mr Trudeau has been asked some questions about that they won't confirm or deny whether they were working on that kind of strategy or anything they just said once. They knew you of the comments he was immediately disqualified. We will not accept a candidate that has intolerant or unacceptable anti Semitic remarks and that's why we we asked this candidate to step down. I just also want to note His end gay has responded on social media by saying there's more to the story quote this. This is not the whole truth. It's not the end he has also addressed the controversy by saying he's not any Semitic and campaigns against all forms of racism.

We start in the US, which is now officially experiencing the longest ever partial government shutdown in American history, Saturday is date twenty two of a standoff between President Trump and the Democrats in congress over funding for his border wall with Mexico. He's dismissed speculation that he's about to declare a national emergency in order to bypass congress and get funding for the ball. I'd rather not do it because this is something that congress should easily. Do this is something that the Democrats should do. And I don't wanna give an easy way out of something as simple as this. You could actually a lot of people don't like the word invasion. We have a country that's being invaded by criminals and by drugs, and we're gonna stop eight hundred thousand government employees, miss stay January paychecks on Friday some of them. Still working on pay. It also means government money can't be spent on things like subsidies for farmers. That's what I don't need a day on wall. I need my money today. I need my money to plan my crop. I need my money to pay my labor. I leave my money to continue. Let's go live now to our correspondent in Washington. David Willis, David as well as the farmer there. Many government employees are struggling to make ends meet because they should be paid on Friday. Yes. Indeed, Paul hundreds of thousands of government workers missed that first paycheck on Friday, and there are already some very real stories of hardship starting to merge, and that was of course, no further talks planned between President Trump, and the Democrats is starting to look as though instigating some sort of in a national emergency might end up being his only solution is only way out of this crisis. And where is public opinion on this of the polls changed a lot? Not much. I have to say they've been pretty consistent and majority of those polled. Fifty one percent in the most recent poll, a blame President Trump further shutdown as against about thirty as about twenty two percent, or so who blame the Democrats, but it's very much a fight for public opinion. If you like because these two sides are at a standoff, and eventually one of them is going to have to capitulate in no way that you can. I mean, you've been following this from the beginning no way that you can see any source of resolution whatsoever. Well, I think it would take really some amazing act on the part of either Democrats all President Trump to bridge this divide. I mean, what started as a dispute over policy has basically evolved into a standoff. Brinkmanship if you like with really no solution in sight, President Trump arguably having painted himself into a corner over his insistence on this money to pay for the wall, billions of dollars, the Democrats pointblank refusing to cough up those funds and no indication of where we go now. Indeed. Thank you, David. That's our correspondent in Washington. David Willis right now, Saudi teenager. Ralph L is traveling to Canada, she's on a plane heading for the country. Now after tweeting I would like to thank you for supporting me and saving my life. She successfully argued that her life was at risk because she'd given up her Islamic faith and had had her case taken up by the UN. It was widely thought she'd be heading for a stranger. But she hasn't done. I've been speaking with Katie Simpson. A CBC reporter in Toronto about what Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been saying about her case. He shed a little bit of light on what sort of happened behind the scenes to get to this point Alkan is now on her way, we believe to Toronto from there. Whether she stays in Toronto, that's a big question. There are a lot of support in Toronto for refugees and people seeking asylum. So that might be one place she stays, but Justin Trudeau says that the UN did reach out to Canada and asked if Canada would provide asylum for this Saudi teenager and Justin Trudeau held a news conference today about another issue. But he was asked about this. It was the first question to him. And he said this is a pleasure for Canada. This is what Canada does because Canada's stands up on the world stage to defend human rights, and defend women's rights. So this is not the first time Canada has done something like this to really make try to take a stand on the world scene. And really make a point that this is something that Canada does and Canada believes in human rights, but Justin Trudeau confirmed that today and now a Canadian officials are waiting to welcome Alpina. When she arrived in Toronto sometime in the next few hours. We believe. Yeah. And practically speaking do we know what he's gonna do once. She arrives in an paper works being processed who she's gonna live with for example. Well, Canada has a very well established asylum seeker system, so anyone who is a government sponsored refugee they get temporary housing. And then they're they're able to find government housing usually the support there's some financial support there. They introduce you to support network. So that really you get the best chance at success when you're starting your new life in Canada. It's a well established program and usually those financial supports last for about a year. So she's going to have that support. And then it's really going to be up to her as to how she wants to sort of move forward with her life her rival here. She certainly going to be very high profile she's already garnered a lot of support from some other famous people who have asked good up to the Saudi regime Ralph, but always wife who is based in Quebec the province of Quebec, she's been very engaged in actively welcoming Al canoeing and end is looking forward to there'll be a support network for her here. And there there's certainly be support and assistance to get herself established CBS's, Katie. Simpson then let's get more on the ongoing situation. In the Brazilian city of fourth laser next where ROY drugs gangs have joined forces in a violent campaign opposed. The separation of the same gangs in prison. The authorities say there have been nearly two hundred attacks over the past ten days, including most recently, the bombing of a bridge in the city, the gangs aren't happy with the new tougher measures in prison, America's editor is Leonardo Russia. The main change in the prison policy in the state of saline in the northeast. Brazil was the decision to split up these gangs traditionally in Brazil, void violence to avoid the basically being killed inside prison. They're put on separate wings of any prison. You have to major gangs the PCC in the read command in visit the all the all the powerful. They're more like powerful criminal organizations and gangs evolved in drug trafficking. Silence across the country in many of the leaders are in jail in traditional you have an east wing with one members of one gang affiliated to that in the west wing and the government in in this state of Sarah, I which is by the way, so left-wing government. They decided that has to stop with not going to to cater for what they want anymore and also the measures like restricting access to mobile phones, and all they're trying to put some order into this jails that was in December November announced and then the gangs announced, but what happened was what had happened. In other Brazilian seats in the past. You started to have first public passes being set on fire attacks on public buildings, which with police intelligence said these are the gangs responding to there to see if we stop and as they've been any response from the new president president Bolsonaro with president Bolsonaro says I need to change.

"So on the one hand, we have this practice of exclusion from society. But then on the other hand, those women experienced that as a very positive thing. Again, two sides of one coin among the Alithia women of the South Pacific got lip says breast feeding women joint menstruating women in those odds of seclusion. Along with the children. And she says that that kind of created this party atmosphere, basically. While Hudson while menstruation hearts can be exclusionary and like tortuous experienced in some places, they're all variations on the theme and in lissi women in the South Pacific, breastfeeding women menstruate menstruating women were kind of excluded from society to gather. They interpreted that as very positive thing and kind of threw a party and in some parts of Ghana in west Africa, young go sit under umbrellas that are very beautifully crafted like those those a beautifully crafted ceremonial umbrellas that done like made for this occasion when they begin menstruating. And then the family gives her gifts and pays her Hamaj is and she celebrated like a Queen like, we we already talked about this in with with all to some areas in India menstruation is celebrated. And then for the Bengals women of the Ivory Coast Cutler found that male in post restrictions on menstruating women. Also, come with positive twist because quote, an older men religious leader in the local religion told me menstruation is like the flow of tree you need the flow before the tree can fruit. That's a very different ideology than the ideology of sin and pollution. Unquote. So yeah, I already said that the flip side of the menstruation is powerful. And terrifying coin is like, the ministration is powerful and terrifying. And that's why we use it for a pup assesses. And then in some religion menstruation can even be a powerful tool because okay, I'm going to have to say it again. So the flip side of this idea that ministration is powerful. And terrifying is also that. In some traditions. Menstruation is powerful and terrifying. And that's why women can use it for their own purposes. So in some religion menstruation can be a tool and in some New Orleans voodoo, rituals menstrual blood is used weakened seamen's, drew blood as powerful and as connected to wisdom, again, one thing that we must -nificant hit is the fact that ministration might be celebrated and giving a special status is usually just the other side of the impure disgusting coin over every reaction to that. As in the case of wiccans. Right. So even the ministrations, I'm not normal natural part of life. But something other something special, and even the most of us live, very secular lives nowadays. And we don't really follow orthodox religious rules. Even though we may be. You know, we may come out of religious traditions. The tabun the shame and the shaming surrounding when station is still very real. We talked about this in episode of a series administration. And the idea that ministration is something disgusting. Unclean or scary seems to be very deeply ingrained in all Pasha alkyl cultures. And to wrap this whole thing up. I would like to quote from the medium obstacle by Katie Simpson. She says quote. Whether you believe in God and not these two booze Matto in two thousand ten the one point six billion, Muslims one point three billion Hindus and two point seventeen billion Christians that sixty nine percent of the total world population. Everyday these to impact millions of women some of it isn't this drastic as being kicked out into HUD. One study shows that women are seen as less human when they hold when the scene holding a clean menstrual product, but more importantly to boost shape, how we view around bodies. Another study showed that women from traditions with rules around ministration when more embarrassed ashamed in secluded compared to other women so should women around the world, abandon these rituals. Not so fast. The same study also found that women had a stronger sense of community than those without minstrel which rules, though, these rituals keep women a pot. It also gives them. Face with each other ritual in in my opinion, isn't the issue. The problem is the tabu and shame underlying it combining silence and seclusion max unnatural cycle and bodies as Elian and different America. In some ways is a perfect example of this as a country with a strong Christian heritage. We no longer have rituals keeping women apart. But the tabu still impact as society, it's inside my own. It's inside my embarrassment holding attempt on while walking into bathroom it lives in the crazy. PMS woman troop it sits between my teeth as they clench struggling to deal with Krems while in a meeting we all excluded anymore. We just have to pretend it isn't happening..
